Keeping IT safe: Konica Minolta promotes best practice security during European Cyber Security Month

| 25 September 2018

With data having become the most valuable resource in modern economies, businesses are seeing an explosion in data security risks and are now the number one target for hackers. When a need for constant vigilance is now the new normal, how can businesses fully embrace the benefits of digitalisation such as mobility and faster operation without opening the door to greater risk? Konica Minolta aims to help its customers to fulfil even the strictest requirements for security in the field of IT – while at the same time reaping the benefits of digitalisation. This is why during European Cyber Security Month, Konica Minolta will be holding a series of events that will help businesses learn how to assess and manage cyber threats while staying competitive.

Held in the month of October, European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is an EU awareness campaign that promotes cyber security among citizens and organisations and highlights the importance of information security. The campaign seeks to promote best practices to protect data, raise awareness, and change behaviours. Around this month, Konica Minolta will be holding a series of events in Germany and Sweden that will help organisations navigate the complexity of today’s security challenges – and understand how they can achieve the highest standards of data security.

With IT services that include IT security, data protection and recovery, anti-malware, cyber security and thanks to secure business process solutions as well as the hardware to match, Konica Minolta is helping companies prevent information leaks and create secure working environments. The company’s ECSM events will explore the plethora of challenges this breadth of solutions helps address: from showing how organisations can embark on digital transformation and accelerate business processes without losing sight of security of data, to insights on how intelligent video security systems from Konica Minolta can protect the integrity of physical assets – the programme offers a compelling blend of forward vision and practical insight.
